When working with a consultancy, you want them to think and act like business partners, building lasting positive relationships with your company.
There are a lot of consultancy firms out there that do exactly what their contract and client ask for them, and nothing more. When a consultancy thinks and acts like a business partner, they want to help a company develop to be the best it possibly can be. Help it grow and achieve all its business goals or sales. That involves looking at a company as if you are in partnership and developing all the strategic plans as if you were a part of the company itself. Not just a contract.
Why work with a consultancy instead of employing?
Employing someone who has the same skill set as what a whole team can offer is a significant expense, especially for start-up companies.
By engaging with a consultancy, you have access to a highly skilled group of professionals that can help guide a company into success, getting it ready to be able to employ someone once the consultancy has achieved its goals for your company.
At Ortho Consulting Group (OCG), we not only want to help you when we are partnered but want to make sure a company succeeds once the contract is complete.

An outside opinion from a consultancy can provide a completely different perspective on your company. This is beneficial when you have hard to solve problems or must make some difficult decisions within your company to help it grow. Working with consultants, they have often worked with many different companies with all sorts of business challenges. They can use this to their advantage as they can look at what’s gone wrong in the past for other companies and your own to help build the best strategic plan.
Having an outsider’s opinion can allow for more creativity and innovation, which is essential for companies to grow to their full potential. Consultants will have an unbiased opinion as they work with a company to not for it. Instead of having people that will agree to keep the peace, consultants will share their views and thoughts to help a company achieve its goals.
Getting it right
There are many benefits of working with a consultancy; it can help a company grow a company or fix problems that cannot be figured out inhouse. But you need to pick right. You want to work with the ones that understand your business and industry inside and out and ultimately care about your company’s success.
